GCSE textiles work
An example of the intricate beadwork and stitching.
GCSE textiles work
A colourful example of work designed for a wildlife sanctuary.
Thursday 2nd June 2011 by C. Freeman

Students working on a GCSE textiles project have produced a range of stunning individual pieces. The Year 11s were given the brief of either producing a product for a tourist attraction such as a wildlife sanctuary, or a skirt promoting sustainability and recycling for a display in Oxfam.

The results ranged from wall hangings and cushions featuring reverse appliqué and laser cut embellishments to a skirt made by Jordanne Beeby using material that she had dyed with berries.

Teacher Miss Blencowe said: ‘The students came up with initial ideas then developed them carefully. As a result of their planning they were able to tackle the projects logically and independently. There has been a great deal of experimentation with beading, embroidery, crochet, batik, reverse appliqué and fusable fibres. The items are all so different and are beautifully thought out and finished.’
